I know not everybody's a fan, but I love the guy and I'm happy to see him back. Anybody else on board with his new show?

I always liked him. I'm pulling for him to do well. Team Coco and all that shit.

I like Conan. I even made a point to watch the premier the other night. I thought the opening sketch was pretty funny. The rest was ok. Although, I may never watch again because it is on at 11:00 and I am normally news, seinfeld then bed.

Having Conan back on television is like the world being normal again.

Also love that he's back. Will be interesting to see if they'll phase some of the old skits back. Using the Masturbating Bear once may have been a blip but if they regularly use the old skits, NBC may start having a litigating boner. The skits so far have only been meh. The Standards and Practices meeting was the only one that had me bawling. But that'll be the strength of any Conan show, having him riff and improv off of unsuspecting people.

Anyone else not digging the opening credits music? Loved the Late Night/Tonight Show theme. Is that NBC property or something?

1st few shows have been pretty good. More old school Conan and not The Tonight Show stale, toned down version.

Had some really solid guests too, so that helps. Did 4MM viewers on opening night which is a HUGE night for TBS, hell it's a huge night for any late night show. Will be interesting to see how the audience holds up but extremely impressive.
Playing here is the closest thing to heaven. Really, I mean it's amazing to be in a place where the fans truly cherish their football team and stick behind them win or lose. We players love them, too. I feel a sense of accomplishment playing here, we are a special breed of football players with a great opportunity." ~ tOSU LB Brian Rolle

I'm not sure how it all works but he may not be able to use his old skits as they are property of NBC. Unless TBS bought them (and it probably wouldn't be cheap) I think he's out of luck as far as that goes.
